What is Naan?

Naan is a traditional flatbread originating from the Indian subcontinent, typically made from a dough of flour, water, yeast and sometimes yogurt or milk. It is usually leavened with yeast or baking powder and cooked in a tandoor oven, resulting in a soft, fluffy texture with slightly charred edges. Naan is commonly served alongside various Indian dishes, or used as a base for pizzas and sandwiches.

Ingredients

Scale

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Notes

  • If using larger naan, consider one piece per person (I used Stonefire Mini Naan for this recipe).
  • Brushing the top of the naan with olive oil before adding the sauce helps create a barrier that prevents the sauce from soaking into the bread too quickly.
  • Although the base of the naan is fairly sturdy, avoid weighing the naan down with too much sauce and/or toppings.
  • Easily replace the mini pepperoni with regular-sized pepperoni.
  • Use jarred or homemade marinara sauce.
  • Adjust the toppings to suit your preference.
  • Bake on a pizza stone instead of a baking sheet.
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth!
